Judicial Campaign Ethics Center Offers Ethics Training
In a recent amendment to the Rules Governing Judicial Conduct, mandatory ethics training is now required for all candidates in judicial elections with the exception of those seeking election as town and village justices. Several options to fulfill the requirement will be made available through the Judicial Campaign Ethics Center. The options include attending live training on July 28 and September 19 at the Judicial Institute in White Plains. Simulcasts of these sessions will also be held throughout the state and additional options for candidates who cannot attend either form of training will be made available, as well. The ethics training must be completed either 90 days prior to receiving the judicial nomination or 30 days after. The Judicial Campaign Ethics Center’s website (http://www.nycourts.gov/ip/jcec) will have all of the latest news regarding the training sessions and requirements.
In order to receive the most up to date information, contact the Center by phone at 888-600-5232 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
